CAMBODIA OVERVIEW

 

Cambodia is in the south western part of the Indochinese peninsula of Southeast Asia. Also known as Kampuchea, Cambodia is what remains of the Khmer Empire that ruled over large parts of Southeast Asia from the ninth century to the fifteenth century.

Cambodia has a glorious past from the ancient Khmer Empire which used to be the great state in Southeast Asia for more than a thousand years. Around the time of Christ, Indian traders crossed into China through the Mekong Delta area, bringing not only goods but also aspects of their own culture including languages and religion. Hinduism was Cambodia’s first formalised religion, introduced by Brahman priests who accompanied Indian traders.

The fabulous Khmer ruins of Angkor are masterpieces of world art and architecture. After almost three decades of war and destruction, Cambodians today are rebuilding their land, lives, and culture. Although poverty is still a problem in Cambodia, economic growth spells hope for the future.
